A beach town in New Zealand, Raglan is known for its dramatic black volcanic sands offset by miles of green, rolling pastures. The lively town is a surfer’s paradise, and it is impossible to be bored. If the sunshine does lull you to sleep, Raglan’s famous coffee might be just the thing to wake you up. In this beautifully unique setting, it is a treat to go glamping. Sitting around a fire with the family under a sky filled with stars, or jumping into a spa-pool: whatever you want, glamping’s got it. This curated list of luxury tents suits all your needs and wishes, so kick back on an elegant farm and zen out. Keep reading to learn about the glamping spots in Raglan, New Zealand.

1. Raglan luxury tent with spa (from USD 168)

Set on a rural farm just eight minutes from Raglan, this luxury tent is the perfect introduction to Kiwi hospitality. The tent, unbelievably, has two bedrooms, a drawing-room, a modern bathroom, and even a kitchenette. The bedrooms are both outfitted with queen-sized beds, while the drawing room features a cozy sofa-bed. The kitchen has all the utilities of a non-camping kitchen: a mini-fridge, microwave, pots and pans, as well as a coffee maker, and other cooking basics. However, some of the best features of the tent lie outside in the garden area. It features a hot tub to relax under the stars, a fire pit and seating area to warm yourself, and even a spa pool. The rolling green plains of the rural farm and the hills just beyond set the perfect backdrop to a great glamping experience.

Just a 10-minute drive away from the main town of Raglan and its famous beaches, this yurt is the perfect off-grid getaway. The yurt is located on a beautiful farm framed by Mt. Karioi on one side and the blue waters of the Tasman Sea on the other. The yurt itself is fitted with a wood-burning stove, which keeps it extremely warm even during the winter months. It is furnished with a cozy double bed, rustic furniture, and soft carpets to keep you warm. Moreover, the yurt has a self-contained kitchen.
